Music

I'm a classically-trained percussionist and pianist, but currently out of practice.

This is a random collection of various musical performances that I’ve been in over the years. I have been playing the piano since I was about 8 years old, and majored in music (percussion) at Louisiana State University.

Unfortunately, I haven't played much since 2011 due to family and work obligations, but I hope to pick it up again in the future.
